Data & Statistics

As we embark on Pride Month, it is disheartening to see recent events overshadowing this time of celebration and inclusivity. The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) has faced an outpouring of hate-filled comments against the LGBTQ+ community on its social media platforms, simply for expressing support for Pride Month.


At the North Central Jersey Association of Realtors (NCJAR), we stand firmly against any form of discrimination and hate. As members of the NAR, we are bound by the Code of Ethics, which demands that we treat all individuals with respect and dignity. Article 10 of the Code of Ethics explicitly prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

To reinforce our commitment to these principles, I urge each of you to take the following actions:


Promote Respect and Inclusivity


Always treat your colleagues and clients with respect, regardless of their background or identity. We must lead by example and foster an environment where everyone feels valued and safe.


Address Discrimination


If you witness any form of discrimination or hate speech, report it immediately. This behavior is not only unethical but also against the core values we uphold as Realtors®.


Educate Yourself and Others


Engage in continuous learning about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Participate in programs and initiatives that enhance your understanding and ability to serve diverse communities effectively.


Engage in Allyship


Visit and take the pledge to stop hate in real estate. Encourage your peers to do the same and show your support for the LGBTQ+ community.


We must ensure that our profession remains welcoming and inclusive for everyone. Discrimination has no place in real estate, and it is our collective responsibility to uphold the values of equality and respect.


Thank you for your unwavering commitment to these principles and for supporting the ongoing efforts to create a more inclusive and equitable industry.


Together, we can make a difference. Happy Pride Month!
